In a game from Week 5 of the NFL, we will see the teams of New England Patriots at Cleveland Browns on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio.
This could have been a tough game for the Pats but we all know Tom Brady is coming off from a 4-match suspension and he will be highly motivated to hit the ground running. Patriots also lost their last game against the Bills at home, failing to score a single point. This happened 23 years ago for the last time and now the Patriots might turn this contest into a blowout against a team that is still looking for its first win of the season. Jacoby Brissett couldn’t get going at all at home last week but this probably was his last start for this year. Brady will have Gronkowski in this contest as he had only 1 catch against the Bills last week. Everyone is expecting the Patriots to bounce back with a big win but they are only averaging 20 points per game, which is 22nd best in the league. The Browns couldn’t stop Kirk Cousins last week, especially in the fourth quarter. I wonder if they can stop the motivated Tom Brady throughout the whole game because otherwise, they will have serious issues on defense.
I predict the Patriots to win this game by 11 or more points turning the first game of Brady for the season into a blowout against a team that is struggling both against the run and against the pass.
